In an new ad, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell links Progress Kentucky, the liberal Super PAC accused of making secret recordings of a McConnell campaign meeting, to President Obama, asking how "dirty" his allies will get in the race.
"Mitch McConnell is Obama's No. 1 target because Mitch protects Kentucky from Obama's bad ideas," the ad says. "Liberals will do anything to beat McConnell. They also launched racial attacks against Mitch's wife. And now liberals compare Mitch to al Qaeda terrorists and North Korea's dictator. How dirty will Obama's allies get?"
